A 29-year-old convicted sex offender was arrested in Waikiki Wednesday by U.S. marshals for failing to register as a sex offender.
Justin Jumawan was arrested near Kalakaua Avenue just after 6:30 pm. on an arrest warrant for two counts of failure to register as a sex offender after he moved on Feb. 19.
Junawan was one of eight sex offenders charged with failing to register as sex offenders by the attorney general’s office on May 23.
Jumawan was required to register as a sex offender stemming from an Oct. 31, 2007 conviction for second-degree sexual assault and third-degree sexual assault.
